Chuck Pagano’s first Colts coaching staff is one piece closer to completion.
Alex Marvez of FOXSports.com reports that the team has hired Greg Manusky to be their defensive coordinator in 2012. Manusky was fired by the Chargers last month after running their defense for one season. Manusky ran the 49ers defense for the four previous seasons and left when the team made the move to Jim Harbaugh before this season.
The Colts were close to hiring Steelers linebackers coach Keith Butler for the job, but he decided to remain in Pittsburgh.
Manusky interviewed for the vacant Raiders defensive coordinator position earlier this week. Former Packers coordinator Ed Donatell is considered a contender for that position.
